An incomplete list of UX blogs
April 29th | 2009 By
Throughout the course of the day I’ll check my usual blogs, some user experience related, some not. As I was going through my list of blogs today, I realized that there are many that I’m probably missing out on. So, I chatted with a few folks here at OTO and sent a call for blogs out to the Twitterverse (I’m @banderlin, BTW). I got back some good responses, so without further ado I give an incomplete, but useful list of user experience blogs.
If you feel that I have missed any, please leave a comment. I’ll keep this post up-to-date with the categorized information, based on feedback.
